The Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative is the company’s second major philanthropic programme, launched in 2002. It seeks out gifted young artists from around the world and brings them together with artistic masters for a year or more of mentoring and creative collaboration.

ln keeping with its tradition of supporting excellence, quality and performance, Rolex gives emerging artists time to learn, create and grow.

The 2018−2019 mentoring pair in architecture in the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative is Ghanaian-British architect Sir David Adjaye and his protégée Mariam Kamara from Niger.

We take a look at some of the inspiring architectural design coming out of this worthy Rolex initiative.
